Rack to secondary or leave in better bottle?
 
Ok,
this is my first AG and I haven't stressed too much. ;)
I have 5 gal. in my ported 6 gal Better Boy bottle. Primary
fermentation is done.
I was planning to rack to my 5 gal Better Bottle. Probably will end up with
4.5 gallons in there.
1.) is that too much headspace for secondary/conditioning?

2.) With the ported secondary better bottles, due most transfer to a bottling
bucket and add priming suger and then bottle or
can you bottle from the secondary BB?

1..... No.

2....You need to go to a bottling bucket, there will be sediment in the secondary.

I have both BB's ported and rack back (airless) to the 6 gal and use it as the bottling bucket.
